Voltage Divider Networks

Voltage Divider Networks

Resistances in series produce ratios of voltages, and these ratios can be tailored to meet certain needs by means of voltage divider networks. When a voltage divider network is designed and assembled, the resistance...

Kirchhoff’s First Law

Kirchhoff’s First Law

The physicist Gustav Robert Kirchhoff (1824–1887) was a researcher and experimentalist in a time when little was understood about how electric currents flow. Nevertheless, he used certain commonsense notions to deduce two important properties...
